Are you excited by the optimization problem of providing rich contextual intelligence within a constrained resource footprint? If any of these describe you, read on!

- Conceptualize, explore, and define new inferential and predictive location- and motion-based capabilities for Apple's platforms.
- Collect, curate, and analyze real-world data sets of varying size and complexity.
- Aggregate, filter, and cluster data from a variety of local sensors: GPS, WiFi, accelerometer, and others.
- Design and implement algorithms, then integrate them into production code.
- Test your work. Dog-food it. Collect metrics, and iterate. Dont forget to sweat the edge casesan issue that impacts 1% of a billion devices is a big issue.
A dedication to users privacy and security is core to how Apple does business. We want their devices to exhibit the intelligence and proactivity that can only come from deep contextual understanding.
